Cars.com Announces 2023 ‘Best of’ Winners
Cars.com has announced the winners of its annual Best Of awards program, which highlights winners in six categories: Best Family Car, Best Luxury Car, Best SUV, Best Electric Car, Best Pickup Truck, and Best Car of the Year. This year, Kia’s 2023 Niro has earned the Best Car of 2023 honor from an evaluation pool of all-new and significantly redesigned vehicles for the model year.
Cars.com automotive experts selected the 2023 Niro for retaining the best features of its first-generation model while implementing practical and stylish upgrades, including improved efficiency, new LED running lights and customizable rear quarter accent panels, the panel said.
“With mounting consumer interest in battery-powered cars, we named the Kia Niro — with its EV, plug-in hybrid and EV versions — as our Best Car of 2023,” said Jenni Newman, Cars.com editor-in-chief. “The Niro boasts impressive versatility, style, comfort and value, but it was the hybrid version of this hatchback that really wowed our judges. Overall, it leads an impressive pack of winners this year, including the Jeep Grand Cherokee as our first-ever Best SUV and the Hyundai Ioniq 5 as our Best EV. All of our winners represent the very best in their respective categories and signal to shoppers where to begin their search.”
